There are differences between coffee and tea in their taste, preparation, recipes and flavor. Both tea and coffee are the members of evergreen family. Both plants develop into large trees, but they are kept being trimmed to the height of a shrub. The flavor of both the drinks is affected by moisture, surrounding vegetation, soil condition etc. The similarity is that both contain caffeine, but the amount of caffeine varies considerably in a single serving of these beverages. Tea refers to the agricultural products of the leaves, leaf buds, and internodes of the Camellia sinensis plant, prepared and cured by various methods. "Tea" also refers to the aromatic beverage prepared from the cured leaves by combination with hot or boiling water, and is the colloquial name for the Camellia sinensis plant itself. Coffee is a brewed beverage prepared from roasted seeds, commonly called coffee beans, of the coffee plant. Due to its caffeine content, coffee has a stimulating effect in humans.
